Sunday Service Schedule

Sunday Services  |  Sunday, March 22 @ 10:30 am — At Grace and via Grace Family Connects YouTube Channel

We are holding services in the building and broadcasting live via our YouTube Channel. We are excited to be back in the building for Sunday morning worship. We’ve rearranged the chairs to give us more space and are encouraging good hygiene. But very much value the gathering together on Sunday morning.  
Children’s activities are also happening on Sunday morning. We have the following classes: nursery for those under 2, toddler and preschool for those 2-5 years of age, and an elementary/preteen class for those going into Kindergarten through those going into 6th grade. Social distancing is imperfect at best in these environments. If parents would prefer to keep their children with them in the main service, that is totally encouraged. We clean the environments where the children’s classes happen well. And encourage lots of hand washing. With the older kids, some social distancing is possible by rearranging the environment. If you have any questions about what we’re doing to minimize health risks with our children, please contact Cindy McKinney at

December 11 – Rice and Beans Bagging Party

Rice and Beans Bagging Party | Wednesday, December 11  @ 7:30 pm

It’s time to set a trailer load of rice, beans, meat, clothes, and Christmas gifts to our church family in Reynosa. After Men’s, Women’s, and youth activities on Wednesday night, we’ll set out tables and bag up rice and beans. This is a blast. If you’ve never come for one of these bagging parties, join us. We have a great time packaging the food in family size serving bags so that Bob and Donna Giffon and the church family of Iglesia Palabra De Fe can distribute food in their outreach efforts. Contact Cindy McKinney if you’d like more information.

We would be honored to celebrate your faith with you! Please speak with any of our pastors, elders, or Life Group leaders if you have questions or want to know more about your faith and baptism.

August 25 – Life Group Fair

Life Group Fair  |  Sunday, August 25 @ right after service
Right after church, leaders and members from all of our life groups will be set up in the Lounge so you can meet these amazing people. At Grace, it is our desire that every person connects with a life group. These groups meet regularly to delve into God’s Word, discuss the sermons, and more. The specific focus of each group is tailored for the needs of the individual groups. But life groups are much more than just a place to study Scripture. As increadibly important as that is, life groups do life together. Through prayer, fellowship, and fun, life group members take seriously the all of Scripture to invest in other believers. There is no better way to plug into the community of God at Grace than to join a life group.
